Smart home, or will become the main application areas of service robots

The widespread use of robots can be said to be the most convincing achievement of automatic control in the twenty-first Century. With the advent of artificial intelligence, robots are no longer limited to industry, but to wider applications. Among them, the service robot can replace human to complete due to many dangerous and complex task, the liberation of the human labor burden and other advantages, quickly become a new force in the Android market.
It is worth noting that, with the further development of the popularity of smart Home Furnishing, human-computer interaction, medical equipment and intelligent robot technology, service robot is expected to become the computer, mobile phone, consumer electronics products entered the ordinary family.
What can a service robot do?
As a new face of robot family, there is no clear definition for service robot at the moment. But the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) after several years of collection, give a preliminary definition of the service robot: service robot is a semi autonomous or independent robot, it can benefit human health services.
In addition, the service robot can be subdivided into two categories according to the user and the environment. One is the service robots for individuals and families, such as mopping robots and recreational robots, and the other is professional service robots, including surgical robots and fire fighting robots.
As in other countries, China’s aging population is becoming more and more serious. A young couple will support 4-8 old people and raise 1 children. As a result, they are running out of money and supporting their families, working harder and harder, and spending less time with their children and caring for the elderly. Thanks to this, service robots emerge as the times require.
The humanoid intelligent housekeeper “ ” it has its own good grasping manipulator can achieve a simple touch operation, and through the IMU (inertial measurement unit) and auxiliary beacon on its location tracking and correction. When the host is still in the dream, the robot housekeeper has come to the kitchen, skillfully open the electric water heater and rice cooker switch. When young people are out of work leaving only the elderly and children, do not worry, because the robot will use surveillance cameras installed in the head of the independent inspection, monitoring room in the house, appliances, smoke etc..
However, smart Butler has not yet popularized. At this stage, sweeping robots, recreational robots and medical care machines are also the backbone of the service robot market. Recently, Japan’s Hitachi company issued a code for the new humanoid robot EMIEW3. It can recognize specific sounds in noise, and can also judge guests who need help and provide services voluntarily. In addition, EMIEW3 also has the functions of multi lingual coping, falling down, climbing up and providing active help, etc. it can undertake the tasks of shopping guide, reception and so on.

Industry data from the world show that the growth rate of service robots will be far more than industrial robots, shoulder the biggest industry growth engine. In fact, this result is also predictable, because compared to industrial robots, service robots closer to people’s needs, but also more broad application scenarios.
It is worth noting that in the service robot, the home robot market is particularly impressive. Some experts predict that in the next three years, the global sales of personal \/ home service robots will be as high as 25 million 900 thousand units, and the market will reach as high as $12 billion 200 million.
At present, home robots are basically complete single function, such as cleaning, cleaning, care and so on, the user experience is not ideal. Experts believe that the emergence of this situation, mainly service robots lack depth learning ability, failed to identify the user’s intentions. With the development and popularization of artificial intelligence, reinforcement learning, ant colony algorithm, immune algorithm and so on will be applied to the service robot system. It means that the learning abilities of service robots will eventually be comparable, and the complex and uncertain home environment will no longer be a hindrance.
Currently, the major home furnishing industry giants, such as Haier and the United States are in the field of home service robot staking, service robot will be an important part of smart home, has been the consensus of the industry. Therefore, the role of artificial intelligence in service robots is particularly critical. How to give service robots more powerful “ personification ” function, no doubt will be the industry’s firm direction of efforts.
Conclusion: the development of science has enabled the service robots which once appeared in science fiction movies to gradually come into reality. Especially in the past two years, the domestic smart home hot, it is to provide a hotbed for domestic service robots. It is clear that the future service robot will go.
